two siblings and I were removed from our home by the
state of New York in 1967 and were shipped off to a
foster home. My mother died when I was seven years old,
while I was in foster care.
1999 I found my mom through a social security check.
I paid a detective a hundred dollars and he broke the
bad news to me that she had died. I live in Boynton
beach, FL, Palm Beach County. On Mothers Day, 1999,
I drove to St. Petersburg, FL, where my mom had lived,
and found her last residence. I took my four-year-old
daughter with me. When I saw the house, I experienced
a strange feeling of peace that emanated from the place.
I took a picture of the house. Weeks later I had the
film developed, and in the top window, her room, strange
enough, there is a silhouette of what appears to be
an angel. It has boggled my mind for years. I spoke
to the landlord, and she recalled how my mother had
suffered from losing her children. She died of a heart
now have a five-month-old baby who resembles my mom
exactly. I am 42 years old and firmly believe my baby
girl is my mom who has come back. My mother's name was
Barbara Ann. After much deliberation, we decided that
our baby daughter's name should be Brianna - B for Barbara
and Anna for Ann. Every time I look at her, she smiles,
but when I call her "Mom," she cries. Weird!
wife has had a heart condition and neurological problems
since 2001. Doctors told her she could never have another
baby because it would endanger her life. Unexpectedly,
she became pregnant and went into a deep depression
thinking she would die. But she survived the birth.
And when the baby was born on October 19, 2006, I immediately
saw my mom in her eyes and smile.
